7.24.5 Visibility Diagram
Figure 7-34 depicts the mediator routing packets to and from several simulator sessions
in different domains. The session running BSD #3 is using an absolute MAC address, and
therefore is globally visible. This session is no different than any other machine running
on the external network. All simulator sessions, connected to any mediator, will be able
to see this machine.
Notice also that domains one and two are using identical BSDs that are running
simultaneously. To prevent collisions on the external network, the mediator will not route
broadcast packets to these sessions as they are using a fixed MAC classification. The
gateway will be able to do network address translation (NAT) for each BSD in each
domain to make sure that there are no collisions between the two domains.
